Each riddle is eventually framed and put in the Imperium Gallery, with the answer below it, hidden by a veil.
When Writing Riddles
A very good way to write riddles is to work backwards. Pick your answer. From there, find some things which describe it. Feel free to brainstorm, coming up with all sorts of ideas. Then, narrow your list down by eliminating attributes which are too general, or too limited (ie. If I had "Red" for my answer of "An Apple", I'd need to have a lot more description, because red can describe many things, from Apples to Strawberries. Also, not all Apples are red)
A Good Riddle...
- Is a stumper, but when the answer is revealed, it makes complete sense
- Cannot be truthfully said to be a different answer than it is
A Bad Riddle...
- Makes no sense
- Has a seemingly unrelated answer
- Can be accurately answered with something other than the right answer
- Is not yours
